Hitting the Birdie


Badminton is a racket-and-shuttle game played on a court by two players or doubles teams. The sport takes its name from Badminton House—home of the Duke of Beaufort in the English county of Gloucestershire.

By whom, where and when was Badminton invented?

In 1873, the Duke is credited with bringing a version of the game—Poona—back from India and introducing it to his guests.
